It was today (12 May) that bosses for the Regent Street-based Addylline Cafe took to their official Facebook page to issue a statement, citing a ‘lack of clientele’ and the ‘current cost of living situation’ as the two primary reasons behind their closure.

Those wanting to visit before it closes can enjoy alcoholic discounted drinks, as they are offering a 30 per cent discount from tonight until tomorrow (Saturday, 13 May).

The official statement reads: “Due to the current cost of living situation we cannot stay open with a lack of clientele. We have decided that it is with a heavy heart that we are to close in order to think of new ideas to bring to Hinckley.

“On a lighter note for Friday the 12th and Saturday 13th all alcohol will be 30% off! We hope to see you before we close, Thank you.”

The Addylline Cafe began serving up freshly-baked goods last September. Their closure comes at a similar time to the Rusiana cafe seemingly shutting their doors.

This doesn’t leave the Highcross Buildings complex without a cafe though – one of its neighbouring tenants is Moko, who opened in December, inside the former Benito’s.

Elsewhere in town, the former Santander bank could open as a new cafe, if approved by borough council planners. And, the former Honey Buns cafe and samosa shop on nearby Station Road, is looking to open under new management later this month.

  1. Unfortunate, but too many similar establishments in town, money is tight, fewer discretionary purchases.
    Additionally, Regent St is away from the main area of footfall.

    And that’s part of Hinckley’s problem – a main shopping street which is detached from a newer shopping complex. The result is we’ve a dichotomy between established (inc an ageing shopping parade – Britannia) and the up and coming. People just CBA to walk from one to the other.
